Abstract

The occurrence of 210Pb, 210Po, trace elements was assessed in a selection of berries on commercial sale in Italy. Data confirmed that berries might serve as an important source of essential elements. The 210Pb, 210Po concentrations found were higher than the reference values reported by UNSCEAR for roots and fruits in the world. There is no risk whatsoever from the intake of toxic elements as Al, As, Cd, Pb, Ni, Hg in berriberries analyzed; it is necessary, however, continuously monitored the levels of these elements to protect consumers against potential adverse health effects especially when consumed in large quantities.
